Sesame Street – Peanut Butter lyrics

Takes a lot of little nuts
To make a jar of peanut butter
'Cause one peanut in a jar
Really doesn't go too far
Gotta crack and shell and mix 'em
There's no other way to fix 'em
Takes a lot of little nuts to do the job

Dump the peanuts from the bag
And start 'em on that old conveyor
Get 'em roasted and assorted
Don't have any time to spare
Please don't think I'm being pushy
Make all real soft and mushy
Takes a lot of little nuts to the job

A little salt, a little sugar
Makes the goo taste really good
Keep it pumping through the pipeline
Like a peanut butter pumper should

Takes a lot of little nuts
To make a jar of peanut butter
Now they're ready, squirt 'em in
Put the lid on, watch 'em spin
In the boxes nice and steady
Ship 'em out, hey world we're ready
Takes a lot of little nuts to get things done
Takes a lot of little nuts
And a lot of hard work
Before the peanut butter's done
